, which brings us together this evening, is very basic in that people who give more than $10,000 must disclose their identity. it applies to labor unions, corporations, everyone. it's across the board. now, disclose used to be one of the tenets, one of the pillars of the republican position. they used to say, don't limit what a person can give as long as they disclose it in a timely fashion. well, they amended their position after citizens united and lopped off the end of it. don't limit what a person can give, period. they don't call for timely disclosure anymore. the disclose act does. and why is it important? it's important because americans have good judgment and they know that if a person, for example, the coke brothers. the coke brothers of pennsylvania, if i'm not mistaken -- wherever their home happens to be -- they're interested in energy and oil production. and if they invest millions of dollars on behalf of a certain candidate, many people, many voters will say, well, i wonder what that candidate's position is on their issues of the tax treatment of oil companies, on energy

country is a society in which, to use the strong state would be an understatement. this is about the strongest state in terms of the control it has been a society and nonpolitical freedoms and even the way people think. so for that reason it's very difficult to imagine that could be a group within a society that could speak out, that could challenge the view that a party congress committees or do things don't happen in north korea. so that is why it is blasted for this long, i think, because in spite of a lot of problems and economic elements, human problems, and it's lasted this long. that is because no one within the system is capable of changing it. >> host: but there are potential forces for change in north korea. you talk about organization, it her mission close. you know, it's maybe post-totalitarian, but were obviously not too pleased that there's an organized opposition. how do you think it's going to take for us to see the evolution of politics in north korea to a point where it's possible to the express? >> guest: it's as political scientist we determine when these happen i
